Half Day Preschool Programs

Multi-Age Preschool
Learning and instruction is individualized as children progress at their own rate and experience success. Children engage in real, meaningful activities at their own level of development. Research shows that when the classroom is composed of a community of learners with a range of abilities and gifts there are measurable gains in socialization, independence, and interaction with peers. Younger children will be nurtured by older children and benefit from collaborative learning.Older children will show increased levels of competence and leadership.
